Cowboys' Romo retiring, replacing Simms at CBS

Posted April 06, 2017

Romo is retiring from football and entering the broadcasting business as he takes over the lead NFL analyst role for the network joining Jim Nantz.

During a Tuesday conference call to unpack his retirement and announce his new broadcasting role with CBS Sports, Romo said that he doesn't "envision" returning to the National Football League, adding that "it's about 99 percent" certain that he's done.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Twitter that Romo's plans come even as the Cowboys were set to release him.

His move to the announcing booth follows a path taken by thousands before him, but the Romo I heard during Tuesday's conference call organized by CBS didn't sound as if he was finished playing.

Romo, who turns 37 this month, injured his back last preseason and ended up losing his starting job to rookie Dak Prescott.

The relative, who would now be 31, had lived with Claiborne through her earlier foreign postings, according to the authorities. The task came a month after the Chinese spy wired $2,500 to Claiborne's bank account in the United States.

Romo led the team to the play-offs in his first two campaigns as a starter but had to wait until 2009 for his first post-season win, adding just one more in 2014.

I was thinking about the Cowboys' backup QB situation now that Tony Romo will officially no longer be with the Cowboys. Romo replaces Phil Simms, whose new role has yet to be determined.

"There's no part of me that wants to play", Romo said. "I felt like I had to play ideal ball, because he was such a good player". The four-time Pro Bowl selection threw for 34,183 yards with 248 touchdowns compared to 117 interceptions and a quarterback rating of 97.1. The four-time Pro Bowler who rose to stardom after going undrafted in 2003 out of lower-division Eastern Illinois chose the path taken by two former Dallas quarterbacks - Don Meredith and Super Bowl victor and Hall of Famer Troy Aikman, the lead analyst for Fox since 2002.

Romo is naturally excited about his new gig.

Tony Romo: "I don't know that the competitive fire is ever gonna go away".

Simms, a Franklin Lakes native, has been a fixture in the CBS booth since 1998.

Because the Cowboys released Romo before he retired, they can split up the $19.6 million hit to their 2017 salary cap. In 2015, he suffered a broken left collarbone against the Philadelphia Eagles and missed seven games. Cowboys fans, NFL fans, former teammates of Romo, and NFL Players wish them an effective broadcasting career.
